The hens are 20 and 22 weeks old this week, and right on schedule, eggs are here! It makes me especially happy to have such timely birds … I like an organized and well scheduled household. The first egg came Friday, and another Saturday. Both from Gwen the Buff Orpington, who is two weeks older than the others.
It’s a right nice darkish buff brown egg, and awfully pretty. Little smaller than the others will be, but she’s such a gorgeous girl, I can hardly hold it against her. We should start getting about 18 eggs a week once all the chickybabes are on schedule. Goooooooood girls!
